Yard Sale...Is it really worth it?

I had a yard sale yesterday and today. Yesterday I made $50 and today I made $25. I always wonder if yard sales are really worth it? Hauling all the junk out, setting it up, pricing it, packing up what didn't sell, sending it to Good-will, etc. I think of it this way - I got rid of junk, made $75 (to probably buy more junk), and spent some time with family - so, in a sense it's worth it. But I'd much rather go to yard sales then have one!

HAHA! I agree! I'm planning mine for next month!

I gave up yard sales a few years ago (having one that is). It took much more work and I think I hauled more things to Good will.

We are having one this month but that is only because we are donating the proceeds to the Child Hunger Ends Here campaign. I am not to into yard sales but my wife Melinda is.
